Met Police “have concerns” about a law chief’s boasts he has found Madeleine McCann’s “killer”, it is claimed.

German prosecutor Hans Wolters has said he is “100% sure prime suspect Christian Brueckner was involved in Madeleine’s 2007 disappearance.

He says TV sleuth Mark Williams-Thomas, who last week threw doubt on the jailed rapist’s guilt, “doesn’t know the files”.

But yesterday Brit Mr Williams-Thomas – who unmasked Jimmy Savile as a pervert – hit back. He tweeted: “The British police have concerns about the German prosecutor’s continued media appearances and statements.

“Time for German prosecutor ­after three years of investigation and asserting that Christian B killed Madeleine McCann to charge him or admit they just don’t have the evidence.’’

Mr Williams-Thomas said he had presumed Brueckner was guilty before he investigated.

Last night Mr Wolters told the Daily Star: “I don’t want to comment on the statements of Mr Williams-Thomas. He is not serious.’’

Hans Christian Wolters has consistently defended his claim Christian Brueckner is behind the Brit girl’s 2007 disappearance.

It came after TV investigator Mark Williams-Thomas said he was convinced the convicted child sex offender was innocent.

Mr Wolters, who is heading the case in Germany, said: “Because Mr Williams-Thomas doesn’t know the files we are not surprised by his opinion. It’s a fact that the suspect has no alibi.

“We found nobody who gives Christian B an alibi. And the suspect doesn’t claim an alibi.”

Christian B is German paedophile Christian Brueckner, currently serving jail time in his native Germany for the rape of a pensioner.

Investigator Williams-Thomas does not believe Brueckner is responsible for the Maddie mystery.

He said: "In Portugal after 15 years any serious crime including murder can’t be prosecuted… Christian Brueckner was made an arguido to get around this. I believe he is innocent.

"Somebody’s previous offending does not make them responsible. That is not how the criminal justice system should work."
